ART LESSON # 222 - Sometimes it’s just not meant to be. And that’s okay. I tried 3 times and put a lot of hours in, but it just wasn’t meant to be. No real reason why - I just couldn’t get the details right, couldn’t get the shading to work at all, and in a fit of fury, all 3 canvases (that I HAD planned on reusing) succumbed to artistic rage. ‘Goodybye! Goodbye! Goodbye!’. Smashy smashy. It’s frustrating that, when the thing you do best doesn’t work out & ya can’t figure out why. It’s like a loving, loyal dog all of a sudden turning on it’s master. But, I put these up as a reminder that sometimes in life, even when you really WANT something to work out, it’s not meant to be, and you just let it go and move on to the next thing. (side note - the Edward Scissorhands piece I am working on seems to be inching his way closer and closer to this wall)
Sometimes the ‘third time’ is not the charm. Sometimes, when a painting doesn’t work out 3 times in a row, you move on to other things, and come back to it another day. 4th Time’s the Charm, perhaps. perhaps, perhaps. where’s the whiskey? (oh look, none here. I guess you’ll do, coffee. I guess you’ll do) Ya’ll other artists know m’pain??
Okay, so I am now officially putting up the PINHEAD for the ‘silent auction’ type of thing. If you’re interested in it, PM me with your bid on it. Should you be outbid, I will let you know, and I’ll let you know what the top bid currently is at. I’m going to run this for a couple weeks & I’ll be putting up notices/reminders here, on the Art Page and on the Quiet Room Bears page. Any questions, shoot ‘em my way!
Oh look, I AM in Man of Steel after all! Yup. Not photoshopped. I play, uh…..Super….Superguy? Superpal? Random Citizen?
IT’S MAH BIIIIRRRTHDAYYYYYYYY!!! Woo!…why am I sober?
‘Zombie Jay and Silent Bob’ drawing I was commissioned to do.
Cleveland Brown is REAL! I took a pic of the dude from the HairClub for Men commercial because I FOUND THE REAL CLEVELAND!
This latest painting is going to be the death of me. It’s not been working for 3 days now. I want to finish this tonight. I am sick of it. If I CAN do it, it’ll look great. It’s a new addition to my Movie Icons series. It’s Edward Scissorhands and it’s not. frigging. working. out.
Siiiiiighhh. Nothing more discouraging then not being able to succeed in the ONE thing you are best at.
Coffee time, prease.
humanskyn asked: Dude! Do you still have that Pinhead painting?
Yup, certainly do. I was going to put it up for the ‘silent auction’ thing, but if someone made me an offer I couldn’t refuse, I would let it go for sure with the auction process.
Is that Wolverine? LeeVerine? Ben Vereen? Nope, it’s Artverine, the shittiest X-Man ever. (I tried to make my hair look like Wolverine, but I look more like Barf from Spaceballs.)
